ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, also called the Islamic State (IS). The group is popularly known as Da’-ish in Arabic. Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, former Al-Qaeda member in Iraq, is credited with laying out ISIS’ original ideology. Yezidism is not an Abrahamic religion and its root comes from an ancient religion that calls Mithraism; because of this they haven’t a prophet and a book. They believe only in (GOD). They believe that good and evil have one gate which is only (GOD). They don’t believe in (DEVIL). They also believe that Melek-Taus is the chief of angels and he is in charge of universe on behalf of God. However, some people believe that the main distinctive point between Muslims and Yezidis is this tenant; Yezidis believe that the origins of individuals' thinking and directing daily actions and functions is God and Melek-Taus, while the accepted idea in Islam is simply to account bad thing to the devil alone rather than involving God. Thus, accepting the idea of Devil in such a manner caused Yezidis to be targeted with hatred and animosity for centuries not least in Iraq. There is on the other hand a constantly strong conflict and competition between the main predominant actors in the Middle East against each other. Thus, this study is dedicated to critically explain certain social effect of this crime against humanity that devastated Yezidi community amidst an international indifference toward victims in time and at post war era.
